Human Resources has clarified that, for any research staff member a PI must terminate for lack of funding/end of grant project, HR will require these 3 documents:
- Copy of a 60-day advance termination notice given to the employee, specifying that funding supporting their position is coming to an end
- Copy of the employee’s most recent annual appointment letter
- Copy of the official award letter/notice from the funding agency that includes end date of the project
The situation is more complicated when the employee is supported off multiple grant projects and/or other resources (e.g., IDC returns). Please contact Carol Holmes in the Dean’s Office as early as possible if you believe you must terminate research staff who are supported by multiple sources. Additional documentation will be required.
